Subject: Colbert's Speech Gives Us Courage
This is the first time in at least 15 years that I have felt anything close to being happy to be an American. In fact, I have been so embarrassed by this Country and ashamed of its actions and/or inactions, that I have felt untrue to my hearts' convictions to stand during "The Pledge of Allegiance". I have not been able to speak the words of this Pledge since the Iran Contra Affair.
Stephan Colbert's humor allowed me to experience a sliver of hope that "our" free speech right may still be real. A right that actually can be exercised out loud and at will.
It takes courage to speak the truth and courage to exercise our rights. Colbert gave me reason to hope that our free speak rights are intact.

Subject: Includes Colbert roasting Bush
This show includes Stephen Colbert roasting bush. Youtube has since taken down the material, ostensibly because of copyright reasons. Luckily, Amy's team is on the ball, and we can assume they have done their homework.

Amy Goodman covers the complete lack of coverage by the networks of the featured entertainer, Stephen Colbert. The media ignored Colbert's speech/routine, while massively covering Bush's own mediocre-at-best performance with Bush impersonator Steve Bridges.

Program includes:
Sami Al-Arian story, including an interview with Al-Arian's daughter, Laila, and his defense lawyer phone John Sugg of Creative Loafing.
Phone interview with Sameeh Hammoudeh and his daughter Weeam via phone from Jordan.
Finally, Steve Colbert's speech, though NOT in its entirety; the orignal piece included a videotaped skit with Colbert as the new Press Secretary and Helen Thomas as an unstoppable fiend. However, all the best of Colbert's speech is included.
